Instructor in Voice 


Atlantic Christian College has a large place to fill in the educa- 
tional life of the Carolinas. If the College is to fill that place ade- 
quately, there is imperative need of an endowment. Herein lies a 
clear opportunity for the giving of money that will do great good, 
not only to the present generation of young people, but the genera- 
tions that are to come. The College now needs a new plant to 
adequately represent the people who own and control it, and to 
adequately do the work expected of it. In view of these needs, any 
bona fide gift in personal property, or real estate, is acceptable to 
the Institution. We insert here a form of bequest, which may be 
used as a paragraph in any will. Address the President for any 
additional information required. 


North Carolina, County 


of the county and State aforesaid, being of sound mind, do make and 
declare this my last will and testament: 

Item first 

Item second 

Item third. I give, devise and bequeath unto the Atlantic Chris- 
tian College (Inc.), of Wilson, North Carolina (here describe what- 
ever is given to said College) 

in fee, absolutely and forever. 

Atlantic Christian College 


Wilson, the seat of Atlantic Christian College, is ideally 
located for a college town. The main lines of two railway 
systems pass through it. The Atlantic Coast Line, running 
north and south makes splendid connection with all the 
branches of that system. The Norfolk Southern, running east 
and west, makes easy access possible from these directions. 
With about twenty passenger trains passing through it each 
day and every train stopping, you are never far from home 
when at Atlantic Christian College. 

The environments of Wilson are equally as advantageous 
as its accessibility. Wilson is a beautiful city, with good 
walks, electric lights, filtered water, successful sewerage sys- 
tem, and good health record. In the center of a prosperous 
farming section, it is a great cotton market, the largest ex- 
clusive loose leaf bright tobacco market in the world. Its 
citizens are hospitable, courteous and cordial. Its churches, 
representing the leading denominations, have handsome edifices 
of worship and are in a flourishing condition. 

In a thriving town of about twelve thousand population, 
having most of the advantages of a larger city, you are not 
lost and unknown in the multitude. We are able to keep track 
of our students. They are known to the people of the town, 
and it is not long before those of real worth are recognized. 
In such a center of religious, political and business influence 
our students come in contact with some of the greatest preachers, 
doctors, lawyers and business men of the State, and such oppor- 
tunities are not to be undervalued. 

10 Atlantic Christian College 


The fifty-seventh North Carolina Christian Missionary Con- 
vention met at Kinston, N". C, Octoher 3*0 to November 2, 1901. 
The Committee on Education, consisting of D. W. Davis, B. H. 
Melton, W. J. Crumpler, E. A. Moye, and Dr. H. D. Harper, 
made a favorable report for the purchase of Kinsey Seminary, 
in Wilson, 1ST. C, from the Wilson Educational Association. 
According to the report of this committee, which was duly 
adopted, the Board of Managers of the N. C. C. M. C. were 
to act as agents of the Convention in acquiring this college 
property, and were to appoint four trustees to have immediate 
supervision of college. The institution was named Atlantic 
Christian College and incorporated May 1, 1902. Mr. George 
Hackney, of Wilson, 1ST. C, was made Treasurer of the College, 
and about $4,000 was contributed the first year. The building 
was taxed to its utmost capacity with students at the college 
opening in September, 1902. The college property was bonded 
for the original indebtedness of about $11,000 in 1902, which 
was fully paid in 1911. The payment of thisi debt made acces- 
sible the "W. "N. and Orpha Hackney Memorial Fund," which 
was bequeathed "for the education of worthy young men and 
women," and which consisted of real estate in Wilson to the 
value of about $3,000. In 1911 there was built a modern brick 
dormitory for men, on the campus, at an expense of about 
$15,000. In 1914 there was acquired a 672-acre farm in Onslow 
County, two miles south of Jacksonville, N". C. The Carolina 
Enlargement Campaign in the summer of 1920 yielded the 
college for endowment in cash and good pledges, $156,677.70. 

The following have presided over the institution : J. C. 
Coggins, 1902-1904; J. J. Harper, 1904-1907; J. C. Caldwell, 
1907-1916; B. A. Smith, 1916-1920; H. S. Hilley, 1920—. 

Grounds and Buildings 

The college is located in a quiet section in the northern 
part of Wilson. The campus occupies a large city block of 
about six acres. The two main buildings are substantial brick 

General Information 11 

structures. They are thoroughly modern in every respect,, 
heated throughout by steam, lighted by electricity. Modern 
plumbing and adequate bath facilities contribute to health and 
comfort. The furnishings will compare favorably with the 
best of similar institutions. 

Co-Educational Policy 

The institution is co-educational. The supervision is so 
close and vital, however, that we feel all objectionable features 
have been practically eliminated. 

In the dormitory for young women the lady teachers reside 
on the same floor with the young ladies. The oversight and 
care is substantially as exclusive as in institutions for women 

The young men have their own exclusive dormitory and 
society hall. A small athletic field with tennis and basket- 
ball courts furnishes adequate opportunity for recreation and 
sport in the open air, which in this climate is possible almost 
every day in the year. Several men of the faculty, with their 
wives, reside in the boys' dormitory. Thus we endeavor to secure 
such results by close supervision and care as will beget the best 
in study and in character training. 

Religious Culture 

Frequently young people going from home to college advance 
mentally, but retrograde morally. We endeavor to make this 
impossible at Atlantic Christian College. We care for character 
as well as intellect. "We keep our students in a good moral 
atmosphere, throwing about them proper restraints and safe- 
guards, and giving them counsel. 

Every morning the students and professors assemble in the 
college auditorium for chapel exercises. The services are con- 
ducted by members of the faculty and visiting ministers of 
the Gospel. Brief addresses and lectures are given on religion, 
morals, good manners, temperance, the choosing of professions 
and vocations in life, etc. Visitors are always welcome. 

Students are required to attend Sunday School and church 
service at some church each Lord's Day. 

12 Atlantic Christian College 

The young men and young women maintain their own special 
prayer meetings in each of the buildings. These meetings do 
much to develop the devotional spirit and the power to express 
publicly their devotions. 

The religious interests and welfare of the students are fos- 
tered by a standing committee on Religious Education. A 
comprehensive plan has been prepared for the coining year 
and will be thoroughly executed. 

The Young Women's Christian Association is a constantly 
increasing source of strength and inspiration to the young 
women who want to make the most of their college life. At 
the regular meetings there is profitable discussion of devotional 
topics. Moreover, the members of this organization may enjoy 
the privileges of the widely known Students' Conference at 
Blue Ridge, N". C, each June. 

Literary Societies 

There are two College Literary Societies : the Alethian and 
Hesperian. These organizations are very active and hold their 
meetings on Monday evening of each week. 

Prizes and Awards 

Excellence in certain lines of college activity is recognized by 
awarding of prizes each year. The Faculty loving cup is 
awarded to the student who has the best general record in 
college, the Rotary cup to the best student, and the Kiwanis 
cup to the best athlete. The "Williams cup is presented to 
the society winning the annual inter-Society debate. 

A medal is given to the best orator and one to the best 
debater in the college. 


College sports, such as football, basket-ball, baseball and tennis 
are encouraged. Good tennis and basket-ball courts are main- 
tained on the campus for both women and men, while League 
park is available for intercollegiate sports. 

While athletics is generally cultivated by the student body 
and encouraged by the faculty, it has not become the chief 

General Information 13 

factor of our student life. Those who make the ball teams are 
required to be bona fide students. We do not desire a man who 
comes preeminently for athletics. Students who play match 
games with other colleges must have a class standing of passing 
grade at the time of the contest. Not more than five days 
absence during any semester is permitted any student for the 
purpose of sport. 

The Radiant 

But few publications of the kind excel the Radiant, issued 
quarterly by the students of the college. Through its columns 
opportunity is offered for genuine literary culture — though:, 
takes symmetrical form and fittest mold. It is also a powerful 
means for the gendering and expression of a healthy and clean 
college spirit. Through it every student who has something to 
say and can worthily say it finds avenue for his contention or 

The staff is elected from the student body and alumni under 
the general direction of the Committee on Publications. 

The Pine Knot 

On the center tables of our friends and students, "a thing 
of beauty," whose well-thumbed pages show it "is a joy for- 
ever," lies the Pine Knot, the College Annual. 

It represents our best manhood and womanhood — the spirit 
that takes and gives, that dares and does, and falters not. It 
represents also the business energy and civic pride and hearty 
liberality that has placed Wilson among the best towns and 
cities of our Southland. Without the generous support of the 
business men of Wilson this splendid publication could not be 
made. Without the hearty cooperation of our students and 
friends it could not exist. 

With becoming pride, therefore, we present it as the pledge 
of our common interest. 

The Bulletin 

Through this publication the college makes announcements 
promptly, and prints news of general interest for its numerous 

14 Atlantic Christian College 

friends, thus bringing the institution into a close touch with 
its constituency. It is issued each November, February, May, 
and July. 


A good working library has become an indispensable part of 
the equipment. We have installed a library of about three 
thousand volumes of well selected books, which have been 
carefully catalogued and indexed. In connection with the 
library is a reading' room supplied with the leading magazines 
and serials, which students can use when they have spare 
moments. This room will provide a quiet place for local pupils 
to study during all vacant periods. The librarian will be in 
constant attendance during open hours. 


The Biology Laboratory is located on the first floor of the 
main building and is equipped to meet every need arising in 
both elementary and advanced work. The equipment consists 
of simple and compound microscopes, microtome, incubator and 
other apparatus for general Biology, Anatomy, Embryology, etc. 

The Chemistry laboratory occupies a large well-lighted room 
on the first floor of the Boys' Dormitory. The equipment in- 
cludes demonstration and individual apparatus for work in 
General Inorganic Chemistry, Qualitative and Quantitative 
Analysis, and Organic Chemistry. 

Modern apparatus has recently been materially increased 
in both these laboratories and they now offer admirable facilities 
to pre-medical students and students majoring in either Chem- 
istry or Biology. 

Eeseryation of Booms 

The rooms previously occupied are reserved for former stu- 
dents until July the 1st. A deposit of five dollars is required 
for the reservation of the room after that date. This will be 
credited on first quarter's expenses, or, if notice is given in 
writing three weeks before the opening of the school that the 
student cannot attend, the money will be refunded. Beginning 

General Information 15 

July the 15th room assignments will be made to new students 
in the order in which their applications have been received. 
ISTo room can be claimed unless the deposit has been made. 

"What Boarding Pupils and Teachers are Required to Furnish 

One pair of blankets or comforts, one quilt, three sheets, two 
white bed spreads, one pillow, two pillow-cases, towels and 
table napkins, soap, laundry bags, comb and brush, and pair 
of overshoes. Each young lady is required to. have in addition 
both a raincoat and an umbrella. All articles, including trunks 
and valises, should be marked distinctly with the owner's name. 
Each student should bring knife, fork and spoon, as table cutlery 
cannot be sent to rooms. 

Disciplinary Policy 

We advise those who desire to make their rooms cozy and 
attractive* to bring rugs, sofa pillows and pictures. 

It is the aim of the institution to have members of the 
faculty to reside in the buildings with the students. This affords 
the best possible opportunity for that personal contact and 
care for which the institution stands. The splendid opportu- 
nities now offered by our graded schools are preparing pupils 
for college at too immature an age for them to be out from 
under all restraining influence. Following is attached a list of 
regulations which all teachers, patrons and students are re- 
quested to note. 



All students when arriving at the college should report at 
once at the college office and matriculate, and be assigned to 
specific rooms and classes. Failure to do so will cause needless 
loss of time and expense. 

Matriculation obligates all pupils to conduct themselves with 
propriety on all occasions, and to conform to all rules that 
may be made for their government. 

A fee of ten ($10) dollars is charged all full-time literary 
students for matriculation, and is due and payable in full at the 

16 Atlantic Christian College 

time the student is assigned to classes. This fee may be in- 
creased to $15 if matriculation is deferred beyond the time 
set apart especially for this work by the college. 

Students are required to keep their own rooms in order, 
and are held responsible for any damage to furniture or 

Meals will be sent to the rooms in case of sickness only, 
and then by order of the matron of the dormitory. 

Ten o'clock p.m. is bed time in both dormitories. Lights 
will not be permitted after 10 :20 p.m. 

Students residing in the dormitories will not leave the campus 
at any time without the knowledge and consent of the dean 
of men or dean of women. 

Chapel and Sunday Services 

All students will be required to attend chapel exercises daily 
and Sunday School and public worship once on Sunday. Pupils 
are permitted, however, to attend the church of their choice, 
or with which they or their parents are affiliated. 


All communications concerning the men must be made to 
the dean of men, and concerning the women to the dean of 
women, and not sent through the students. This arrange- 
ment avoids many unpleasant misunderstandings. 

Parents and guardians should mail direct to the President 
of the College all drafts, checks and money orders, and not 
send through the student. 

Parents will furnish list of correspondents with whom they 
wish their daughters to correspond. Experience has shown 
this to be wise. 

Parents will receive timely notice in case of serious illness. 
Please inquire of the dean of men or the dean of women before 
taking action in case of sickness. 

General Information 17 


Visitors are always welcome at the college. Rooms are 
equipped in each dormitory for their entertainment. A nom- 
inal charge of 35 cents per meal is made to cover cost of material 
and service. Students and teachers will obtain from the matron 
of the dormitory meal tickets for their guests. Students may 
have guests only with the consent of their parents or guardians. 

All visitors, while our guests, are under the same regula- 
tions as students. 


heedful permission will be granted to the young men by 
the dean of men, to the young women by the dean of women. 
Permissions to be absent from the college for week-ends will 
be limited and in some cases may be denied as not for the 
best interest of the student or the school. 

The attention of parents is called to the injurious effects 
of such absences and their cooperation is sought in diminishing 
them. Requests should only rarely be made. 

On all occasions students are required to come directly to 
college after reaching 'Wilson. 

Parents coming to Wilson, and desiring to see their sons or 
daughters, will please call at the college. 

Students are not permitted to go down town in response to 
telephone requests. 

Day Pupils 

Students residing in Wilson, while on the campus, are subject 
to the same regulations as boarding students. 

Self Help 

Opportunity is offered a number of students to earn their 

board. The work does not take time from recitation, and 

interferes very little with study hours. Twenty hours per week 

in sweeping, washing dishes, waiting on table or firing fur- 


18 Atlantic Christian College 

naces, work on farm and in dairy is exchanged for board. 
Preference is given to those who oould not otherwise obtain 
an education. 

Ministerial students and those preparing to be missionaries 
are granted their literary tuition by an action of the Board 
of Trustees in November, 1920. If a change is made in life plan, 
these students are expected to repay tuition so granted. This 
regulation applies only to work of college grade. 

Children of ministers in active service are charged only one- 
half the literary tuition. 

Orpah Hackney Fund 

By bequest of Mrs. Orpah Hackney we are enabled to make 
concessions in room rent to a limited number of students pre- 
paring for the ministry. 

The College

School of Music 

Ivy Mat Smith, Director 

The aim of the School of Music of Atlantic Christian Col- 
lege is broad and far-reaching. It wishes to create in its stu- 
dents a desire for knowledge of the highest possible standard; 
to develop such desire in the right direction, surrounding its 
pupils with musical atmosphere just as far as it is possible 
to do so; to educate its pupils on broad lines and get the best 
results obtainable in the shortest possible time. 

It is essential for students of the School of Music to receive 
training in the Liberal Arts School, that they may have suffi- 
cient knowledge and understanding to become thorough and 
capable students of both the science and appreciation of the art. 

The school is well equipped throughout with splendid pianos. 
The practice rooms are furnished with upright pianos In good 
tune and repair. The studios are large, comfortable and at- 
tractive for teaching. Several of them contain two pianos. 
The Auditorium, where all recitals are given, contains a concert 
grand piano and an upright piano. 


The School of Musio offers thorough and concise courses in 
Piano, Voice, and Violin, along with such courses as are indis- 
pensable to the educated musician of today: General Theory, 
Harmony, Counterpoint, Composition, Musical Form, Appre- 
ciation of Music, Sight-singing, Philosophy of Music, Ensemble 
playing, Orchestration, and History of Music. 

The prescribed course of study in all departments places 
emphasis upon comprehensive study of the modern systems 
of technic and compositions of the Classic, Romantic, and 
Modern periods. The course of study for piano is systematically 
divided into six grades: two grades of Academic work and 

School of Music 55 

four years of Collegiate work, offering two distinct courses — 
?he Teacher's Course and the Artist's Course. At the begin- 
ning of the Junior Collegiate year the work will be molded 
according to the pupil's intention. If he is fitting himself 
for teaching, he will receive special instruction along lines of 
pedagogy; or should he wish to become a concert pianist, par- 
ticular attention will be given to accumulating a repertoire of 
solos. A wide range of musical literature will be required 
along either course. The Leschetizky technic is taught.

Physical Education 

(For Women) 

This department is organized to supply the opportunity for 
such physical work as experience has shown to be necessary 
to counteract the injurious effect of close application to mental 
work and to favor the attainment by the student body of a 
high state of physical efficiency. The director endeavors to in- 
terest each student in some form of exercise in which she can 
become proficient. Special exercises are assigned to correct 
deficiencies and good carriage is insisted upon. A thorough 
physical examination prefaces the work of each individual. 
Every boarding pupil is required to take physical training. 
Tennis and basketball are open to students in this department, 
the latter game strictly for recreation and not for competition. 
The basketball and tennis courts are kept in condition for out- 
door games. 

The High School 

General Information 

In order to provide for students who have already entered 
the high school department, and for students who have not the 
opportunity in their own communities of taking the last years 
of high school work, the high school will be maintained, offer- 
ing work covering the second and third years of high school. It 
is our purpose to make this the most thorough secondary school 
in the State. The curriculum has been strengthened and its 
work is fully accredited. A minimum of one year of high 
school work will be required of all students who enter and 
records of previous work must be represented at entrance by 
every student. Students whose preparation seems inadequate 
may be asked to withdraw. On completion of 16 units of high 
school work under the supervision of the high school faculty, 
a high school diploma will be granted.
